Chip Wars Rage at Computex, as AMD Debuts Threadripper

The Vega Frontier Edition will be available for professionals at the end of June, but consumers will have to wait at least two more months to get their hands on some new AMD hardware.

At Computex 2017, AMD announced the worldwide launch date for EPYC™, the new AMD family of high-performance processors for cloud-based and traditional on-premise datacenters, previously codenamed Naples, which will deliver the highly-successful "Zen" x86 processing engine scaling up to 32 physical cores. This years AMD's stock price have been climbing rapidly after successfully releasing its ryzen cpu but AMD's stock prices have tumbled after announcing poor earnings and after misleading people on contract with intel.

ThreadRipper has about twice the power of its Ryzen 7 CPUs, which are powering several new Windows desktops from Acer, Asus, Dell, and Lenovo. This system, equipped with AMD's latest 8-core Ryzen™ processor and an AMD Radeon™ RX580 GPU, is the first ROG product that we've designed around AMD and it is a gaming powerhouse.

But information about high-end desktop processors is not the only news AMD had to share at this year's Computex. The render required a mere 13.04 seconds, which is much faster than the 36 seconds AMD demonstrated with the Ryzen 7 1800X prior to its launch. During the show, ASUS has unveiled the first AMD X399 motherboard which is compatible with the upcoming AMD Threadripper processors. AMD's first promising product in the server space in almost half a decade will be launching on June 20.

AMD's CEO Lisa Su, however, tried to paint a sunny picture at the press conference.

As for the Ryzen 7's high-end desktops, systems will begin rolling out in the U.S. by HP by the end of June.

While lacking any real hard numbers, the Ryzen Mobile segment confirmed expectation and rumors about its APU range, namely that we should start to see ultra-portable reference designs coming out soon. The demo featured the Ryzen mobile-powered notebook playing HD video content. All desktop Ryzen processors, including the upcoming budget-oriented Ryzen 3 lineup, have been certified as Oculus VR ready. Vega Frontier Edition GPUs will be arriving on June 27 while the RX Vega gaming cards are expected to launch at SIGGRAPH, which is being held the end of July.
